Director Craig Gillespie and Ryan Gosling will combine their talents once more, and no, not for a Lars and the Real Girl sequel.
Titled The Dallas Buyers Club, the movie follows an inspiring true story. Variety has more:
Dallas Buyers Club is the true story of Ron Woodroof, a tough Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. Frustrated with the lack of available medical options and unwilling to accept a death sentence, Woodroof found a lifeline using alternative drugs and created a lucrative smuggling business that made those drugs available to AIDS patients. Woodroof died in 1992.
If this film ends up with even an inkling of the aching poignancy of Lars and the Real Girl, I am all about it. I can't wait to see Gosling show us more of the dramatic chops we know he has. I anticipate my heart breaking from this film but with this team, I welcome it. You?
